Cache's Corner: Show Him What a ‘Good Boy’ He Is This Father’s Day!

I thought June was just the kick-off to summer (or so I overheard my humans saying at our Memorial Day barbeque party), but then I found out that June also celebrates fathers! While I don’t know my doggy-dad, I love my human-dad…especially when he blames Clawdia for my mischief.

To show him how much I appreciate being man’s best friend, I took to the trusty internet to look for fun gift ideas, and I found some great tech and fun gadgets that will surely make any dad say “neat-o!”

Free app; Available for iOS Only

If your dad is anything like mine, he spends more of his time looking for his belongings than he does using them! But with Klaser, you can help him to remember exactly where everything is (like that TV remote!). Simply take a photo of the item you want to keep track of, label it and give it a time stamp and dad will have a visual log of everything he chooses to put on the Klaser app.

Golfshot Plus
$29.99; Available for Android & iOS

For the golfing dads out there, the Golfshot Plus app is a must! At just $29.99, this app packs a powerful punch with calculated GPS distances and info on hazards for thousands of golf courses worldwide. Dad can also take photos, track his scores and share scorecards directly from the app, helping him improve his game even more.

Free app service; Available for Android & iOS

When dad’s done with golf (or any other outdoor sport or strenuous activity), wouldn’t it be nice for him to come home for a massage? With the Soothe app, easily book a massage for him—right at home! A vetted, background-checked massage therapist (along with the massage table, sheets, lotions, oils and music) can arrive in as little as an hour from booking time, and services are available from 8am to midnight daily.

Anker Wireless Charger Charging Pad
$21.99 (Ave. Cost)

Fear not, smartphone-loving fathers, for I have found what you’re looking for: a nifty wireless charging pad that charges smartphones up to two times faster than other portable chargers! Who wants to be stuck to one charging place when you can take your charger anywhere (like that fishing trip!)?

F181 Wifi FPV Drone
$109.99 (Ave. Cost)

If your dad loves being outdoors and playing around with fun tech, then this drone is the perfect gift of appreciation. Upgrade bonding time from building model rockets to flying this easy-to-operate device, and use the wide-angle HD wifi camera to capture mementos of your adventures together!

Roku Express and Roku Streaming Stick
Roku Express: $30, Roku Streaming Stick: $50 (Ave. Cost)

These days, everything is smart (except Clawdia, in my opinion!). But, if dad doesn’t have a smart TV, Roku Express is an easy and inexpensive way to transition his normal flat-screen into a streaming powerhouse. All you need is a spare HDMI port to plug it in. For a few more dollars, you can add in the Roku Streaming Stick so dad can conveniently control the TV and volume.

Digital Bluetooth Thermometer
$50-100 (Weber.com)
Instead of getting dad yet another barbeque cutlery set, why not up the ante and instead get him some tech for his grill! Weber’s iGrill2 Bluetooth Thermometer ($100) can monitor the temperature for up to four meats simultaneously so he can get his grill on and still cook the perfect steak. And if he only likes to grill one thing at a time, all he needs is the Weber iGrill Mini (a great and inexpensive gift!).

Celebrating dads doesn’t have to mean the same-old gift you always give him. Instead, try one of these fun apps or services or get him some cool dad-tech he’ll love! You’ll get to make more memories in the process, and likely won’t find your gift conveniently buried in the backyard (mom, I swear I did not do this with your favorite tie of his that dad doesn’t like).

Cheers for a fun Father’s Day!
Your pawsitively pawesome pal Cache

Nothing says summer like burgers, dogs, & chicken wings

The start of June has been an eventful, but a fun one for SIS. We kicked things off with a Customer Appreciation event at our Wells location on June 8th. The weather was gorgeous and the food was delicious, so much to the point where we had to make a run to the store to get more! We can't thank our customers enough for their business and we hope this helped show our appreciation just a little bit.

Not an SIS Wells customer? Not to worry. We hope to hold these events at our other branches in the future!

The fun didn't stop there as the next day on June 9th, our own Cassie Mosher, Market Manager of our Springvale and South Sanford branches, represented SIS at the Sanford Mainers baseball team's First Annual Chicken Wing Cook Off event, capturing the hearts of the judges with her Southwest Dry Rub smoked with a hickory wood blend. Can you say yum? No wonder she took home the Judge's Choice Award!

Many SIS employees and their families will be at the Sanford Mainers on Monday, June 18th for SIS Night, so come on down to Goodall Park and say hello!
